Saddleback Kids

Purpose Statement

Our ministry exists to bring children into age appropriate WORSHIP where they can BELONG to the family of God, GROW in their relationship with Christ, learn to SERVE and then go SHARE Christ in the world!

Saddleback Kids is the name of our Children’s Ministry at Saddleback Church and is led by a team of staff and volunteers whose passion is children and whose vision is to “Connect Kids to God and to Others”! Our goal is to provide a fun and interactive program tailored just for kids no matter what age and grade to help them know Jesus and grow spiritually as they build meaningful relationships with other children and adults! Read our FAQ to learn more.

What To Expect

Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! Each child is taught in an age-appropriate environment. From Nursery to grade six our desire is to see each child be cared for in an individual way. Each of our Saddleback Kids leaders has been through an extensive orientation process and has been screened to work with your child. From loving care in the nursery to radical music in "The Edge," your child will be cared for and taught God’s Word in a safe, loving and encouraging environment.

What To Expect

Kids Small Groups (KSG) is a mid-week discipleship program for the children of Saddleback Church in Pre-K through Grade 6. Working through “The Journey,” our discipleship curriculum, your child will focus on developing a relationship with Jesus, learning what it means to be a part of the church family and connecting with their peers and leaders. All of this is done in a consistent small group atmosphere – same leaders, same kids and same day/time each week.

KSG is a time for:

  • Bible study and life application.
  • Crafts and games that relate to the lessons.
  • Worship through music and singing.
  • Prayer requests and group prayer.
  • Scripture memorization.
  • Serving opportunities.
